THE FIVE WONDERFUL PRECEPTS

caused by the taking of life,
we are determined to live in ways
that preserve and protect life in all its forms.


SECOND PRECEPT


Being mindful of suffering
caused by the taking of what belongs to others,
we are determined to take only what is freely given
and to give freely as we are able to those in need.


THIRD PRECEPT


Being mindful of suffering
caused by sexual acts that break commitments,
we are determined to keep our commitments
and to respect the commitments of others.


FOURTH PRECEPT


Being mindful of suffering
caused by careless or malicious speech,
we are determined to use words
to heal the wounds of misunderstanding,
   anger, hate, and fear.


FIFTH PRECEPT


Being mindful of suffering
caused by taking poisons into our bodies and minds,
we are determined to take into our bodies and minds
only those things that nourish awareness, life, and love.
